Printed version of Informer available soon

In response to many reader requests, a professionally printed version of Informer will soon be available for purchase within the U.S. At this time, we are estimating a sale price between $11 and $12 per issue plus postage for U.S. mailing addresses.

"Stay tuned" for updates.
